Good month for me, better than June. Surprised actually, because those content statistics weren't looking good.

Don't worry if it is a mistake they will claw-back faster than you can blink an eye  8)

Best month since Oct 2016; hopefully OK, as it's mostly due to four good value sales.
Best July since 2012.

What's the negative bar about... refunds/reversals?

I would say that is a refund of the yellow bar from the previous month, exact same size!

Rather good for this miserable times. And almost 4x more than SS!. Incredible.
Something strange is happening, after years of a leadership Shutterstock is dying for me and IS and Pond are competing for the first place.

We should be using proper iStock terminology here... don't call it a refund, call it Exciting News!

The month was saved by one Extended License sale, otherwise it would've been very, very bad.

Definitely trending in the right direction for me too. In my case it's IS and AS who are making up the slack and then some for Shutterstocks freefall. I know there are many people who believe the problem with SS right now is primarily image saturation, but I think it goes much deeper than that. All of the major microstock agencies are saturated, yet for me none have taken a nosedive quite like like SS has. My feeling is that more than anything else buyers are simply shifting away from SS for a whole host of reasons.

I haven't looked at sites in detail but I think SS is by far the most aggressive in seeking new contributors. I am seeing some improvement in the "next" tier sies...but for me the main hit is in the smaller ones which appear to be plummeting.

Shutterstock, Adobe and Deposit Photo were slightly up in July.

Happy, considering that i started from 0 in may 2017. for me IS is the best. $ = double what i did on SS. Almost triple $ of what I did on AS. If I combine all my income from the sites I contribute to, I have just paid back the purchase of my G85. Not bad at all for the little amateur that I am!

Someone will certainly ask me the question: What are you doing with all the time you have spent on this? Well, the time to learn Lightroom, Photoshop in addition to the photo missions to get used to my camera, to put into practice what I learned in my classes = for me, a total enrichment !.

Adding all these $ 0.000000001 sales led me to a final descent result

I had three video sales, one for 60 cents, one for 6 dollars and one for 93 dollars, for a really old hd clip.

Hm.

Photo sales like always.

Should I consider uploading older, unsold videos?

"one year to pay back 800 dollar?

Do I need to repeat that I started from scratch? what does your comment add to the conversation? Nothing ... zero, niet, nada. You seem to have a lot of time, you should take some pictures or just get some fresh air and put some positivism in your (too many) post.  ;D

I am very happy with this $ 1200 (and not $ 800)

OK I looked, nothing of great interest. Why am I still getting Thinkstock credits? Looks like I also got a 19 cents RF download total. Just can't wait to see if that's one DL or eight? Whoo Hoo  ::)

When does Thinkstock close and officially go dark?
